Strumica, 7 December 2012

From December 5-6, 2012, in Strumica, the Ministry of Information Society and Administration (MISA) in cooperation with the USAID Investment Development and Export Advancement Support (IDEAS) Project organized two day seminar on promotion and use of new web portal www.ener.gov.mk. The portal is hosted by the Ministry and the main objective of the national electronic regulations registry of the Republic of Macedonia (ENER) is to increase private sector and NGO involvement in the process of creating economic policies and legislation affecting business in Macedonia.

 

The purpose of the seminar was to publicly promote the new web portal and its functions to relevant entities. Thirty-five representatives of the public and private sectors as well media participated at the seminar. At the event were shared practical experiences and challenges by the participants in the process of making laws with a particular aspect of the consultation process and stakeholder’s involvement.

 

This web portal will contribute to increased awareness of Regulatory Impact Assessment and the reaffirmation of its role in formulating sound economic policies, and hence, towards overall improvement of public-private dialogue in Macedonia.
